Has anyone played with digiscoping? The first picture is the view through an iPad.... the second picture is the iPad through a 15x70 binocular...

The pictures are completely unedited, with the exception of shrinking down the size for the CR website....

I went out to the lake again at the weekend, I tried to focus manually this time and I got some good results, I’ll start off with my favourite pic of the day, ISO 400, 640th, f8 shot with my Sigma 500mm then cropped about 50%, I still see that it’s a bit soft, can anyone help my improve my sharpness…..without buying and using LR!!!!
Second pic was shot at the same settings, and so was the third!!

Awesome ... looks like it just finished meditating ... it is very rare to see a bird photo where the bird looks very peaceful, coz almost all bird images look as if the bird is in a hurry or nervous or tensed or edgy etc ... so this one is very unique in that way.

Nice!  Love how the water has that sort of dreamy look.

OK, I finally did a set up for my waxwing friends.  First I cleared my pond of all the snow -whew.  Then I got out the garden hose and stretched out all 200 feet of it over there this morning after the sun was coming up.  Then I invited my friends to model for me once I got the water distributed.  Unfortunately, they would not behave!! ;)  What a bunch of troublemakers.

Sometimes misbehaving is exactly what you want! :P Great shot.

Thanks jrista, it was a blast today.  They really were unruly and troublesome.  But no problem, now I get to skate around on the pond! ;)

Nice shot ... the image displays a lot of character of those 2 birds ... me thinks the yelling one is the wife ;D ... ok just to make sure I don't get in trouble (just in case the wife is reading my posts), my wife never yells at me, but does the much more deadly "silent treatments"  :P
